Carney: 10th anniversary of U.S. operations in Afghanistan


U.S. Representative John Carney issued the following statement today on the 10th anniversary of the start of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan. “Today marks 10 years since the beginning of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan. Over the last decade, thousands of young men and women and their families have made great sacrifices in service to our nation.

Carney Introduces “Stop Pay for Members Act”


 Democratic Congressman John Carney introduced the “Stop Pay for Members Act,” a bill that would prohibit pay for members of Congress during default. They would not receive that pay retroactively after a default is resolved. “Congress needs to act quickly to prevent the United States from serious economic consequences that are not completely avoidable. We must not allow a default to occur,” said Rep. Carney. If the nation defaults, the Treasury Department will not have enough money to pay its bills and will have to prioritize which bills it pays first. Rep. ...

Rep. Carney asks Delawareans for input on deficit reduction
In June, Congressman John Carney partnered with the Concord Coalition, a national, nonpartisan organization advocating for responsible fiscal policy, to host a series of interactive public meetings in Georgetown, Dover and Stanton focused on priorities and challenges within the federal budget.    “For more than a year, a top concern for Americans has been fiscal responsibility, controlling the federal budget, and reducing the national debt,” said Congressman Carney.  “These meetings provided Delawareans with an overview of the current fiscal climate and necessary budget choices. Each session also gave attendees an opportunity to participate in an interactive exercise to determine where to reduce spending and how much should be cut.  I work for the people of Delaware, so even if they weren’t able to attend a meeting, I’m eager to hear their input on how to approach the debt problem.”   Delaware First Media said: “The meetin
Carney, Barr introduce bipartisan bill to protect consumers' credit scores from medical debt
Congressmen John Carney (D-DE) and Andy Barr (R-KY) announced the introduction of H.R. 2362, the Medical Debt Relief Act. This bill would require credit reporting agencies to remove medical debt from a credit report within 45 days of the debt being either settled or paid in full.  Currently, consumers may have to wait for up to seven years for paid medical debt to be removed from their credit report. Moreover, the bill provides additional time to consumers faced with a medical bill to work out the charges prior to the debt being placed on his or her credit report.  This will help ensure that erroneous or disputed medical charges do not end up on a consumer’s credit report. Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) plans to introduce companion legislation in the Senate.   High medical bills are one of the leading causes of indebtedness in America -- half of all overdue debt on credit reports is from medical expenses.  Over 43 million Americans now have unpaid medic

Reps. Carney and Bucshon announce new bipartisan legislation to address prescription drug shortages
U.S. Representatives John Carney (D-DE) and Larry Bucshon (R-IN) today introduced the Drug Shortage Prevention Act, to address the scarcity of certain pharmaceutical drugs in the marketplace. In 2005, there were 61 different drug shortages.  In 2010, that number was 178.  Last year, there were more than 230 different drug shortages. Cancer drugs, anesthesia drugs, and nutrition medicines are overwhelmingly affected by these shortages. Those drugs aredelivered intravenously, as opposed to in a pill form, and the manufacturing process is complex, time-consuming, and highly precise. Many of these drugs have only one or two manufacturers in the market, so when a manufacturing problem occurs, it can quickly cause a shortage. The legislation mandates expedited review of drugs vulnerable to shortage in order to prevent shortages in the first place and it requires FDA to a use more refined regulatory process that addresses manufacturing problems without instigating drug shortages.
